    Hey thanks!

    It's been a while. I'm having my finals at the moment. Another month to go and I'm through my first semester. I haven't seen sleep for a while, I think he's up in the attic, tying a knot.

    So to celebrate our first 10 weeks, we were asked to film a youtube movie about how we feel right now. Here it is. It's called FHALLING DOWN (FH = University of Applied Sciences) and I hope you like it!

    Fun with acrylics… Well, not really fun, it's for a diary that I have to deliver for art history class. Still very wobbly with traditional media. This one is about A4 sized, I'll try to color correct it before printing. At the moment, it's more like… slime-city.

    Here's a speedpainting I did today after a long time without even touching the wacom pen. I also made a video showing the process. I had some trouble uploading to YouTube (I have never done that before), the quality is rather blurry. Suggestions and feedback is very, very welcome!

    Oranje Joe: Thanks mate! That painting is actually Monet's "Impression, Sunrise". But as I said, I can't yet control color with real paint.

    Peter: Thanks!

    I've had a bunch of test submitments today. Some for art history, which I kind of had to rush (grml) and another for my Experimental Graphics course, where me and a friend designed film posters using experimental techniques. Most of the time, the base was a scan or a slide with all kinds of stuff in it (spit for most of them, plus some other fluids and/or objects lying around). The raw material was then put on top of each other using all kinds of blending modes, masks and effects. I gotta admit it was a hell lot of fun. About 6 hours of work overall, it's a shame. Damned bachelor study, it's all rushed and nothing's ever gonna make sense… yeah. Uh, I hope you like it!

    like the little speedy a lot, muted limited pallete works very well.
    I noticed in the video you were dragging the image around the work area even when it's zoomed out and maximized. how the heck did you do that??

    Hey, thanks!

    There are 4 viewing modes in Photoshop (CS3, CS2 had three modes), you can switch by pressing F:

    1. Windowed
    2. Centered maximized (fixed, not movable)
    3. Fullscreen (movable) with menu bar
    4. Fullscreen (movable) without menu bar.

    Use the latter two and you can move freely by pressing and holding the space bar.

    Nice update on the last image, the only thing i would add to it is a little colored glow from the sun to the edges of the rocks... ;-)

    hi jabo...no problem... but i think i have to explain in german

    bei dem simple life hast du ne sehr starke illu, der text aber ist ( durch seine Verzerrung, die schlechtleserliche schrift usw) nicht gut platziert bzw. integriert.
    du solltest bedenken das die schrift ( das wort ) ansich ein Zeichen ist welches allein durch seine bedeutung information vermittelt. eine illustration "bebildert" das geschriebene, verdeutlicht es... bei deinen arbeiten passiert, meiner meinung nach, zuviel mit dem text: er wird verzogen, eingefärbt, er wird unleserlich gemacht.

    das ist eigentlich nicht sinn der sache... im vergleich ist "the deep" schon viel harmonischer. der font ist gut leserlich und durch die softung hast du einen direkten bezug zum thema ( in dem fall beissen sich bildliches zeichen und verbales zeichen aber wegen ihrer potenz. beide sind ungefähr gleichwertig : form, größe, farbe usw. = schwer lesbar bzw differentierbar)

    "zeitmaschiene" und "fliege" sind allein schon wegen der schweren lesbarkeit der "trendschriften"schwierig...

    das "weisse rauschen" wiederum geht, meinermeinung nach in die richtige richtung. es passt inhaltlich ( in diesem fall ist die lesbarkeit aber eingeschränkt), könnte aber mehr raum bzw deutlichkeit vertragen.

    da hasste jetzt viel schmarn ;-) ich hoffe du kannst dir was rausziehen bzw du verstehst ungefär was ich mein.

    persönlich tendiere ich zu klassischen, gut lesbaren und natürlich gut gestalteten schriften. was nicht heisst dass ich nicht zum experimentieren bereit bin. wichtig ist halt die beziehung zwischen den beiden elementen und ihren systemimmanenten anforderungen zu bedenken und gezielt einzusetzen.

    bedenke immer was schrift kann bzw will und was das bild/icon... ich denke sich darüber mal gedanken zu machen ist nich verkehrt ;-)

    Wie schon gesagt... nur ne anmerkung, ich hoffe dass de was rausziehen kannst( ist nicht grad gut strukturiert, warn langer tag)

    hoffe du kannst was mit anfangen, grüße, naz

    check yourself before you wreck yourself...

    nate: Ich verstehe was du meinst und danke dir für die Kritik. Ich habe es etwas übertrieben mit der experimentellen Arbeitsweise, das sehe ich jetzt. Sehr interessant find ich den Ansatz, dass der Inhalt des Wortes sowieso schon vermittelt, was ausgedrückt werden soll, und dass Veränderungen nur Beiwerk sind. Sehr cool, ich danke dir!

    res01ve: Thank you!

    Some pencil sketches from the last two weeks or so.

    Oh, that's a nice way to start the day. Thank you!

    And here you go. People usually don't like my pencils. So feedback is very welcome.

    Alright. 11 hours until my last delivery for this first semester. Here's what I got. All of those are showcasing some of the topics we discussed in class. Best one in my opinion was the rat, because it just worked (goal was to show some kind of movement) and was quickly done. All the others took me about an hour to draw, maybe 1 1/2 for the more difficult ones. Next was quick coloring in Photoshop. Turned out that vanishing lines can really get in your way when you're trying to select areas So, the results are rather mediocre, not to say a little flat. Anyway, here they are:

    cool update dude, about your pencils, I don't know why you thinking the others don't like them - I like them one thing I've noticed and If I may say - try to not repeat your line, just single line make the sketch magnificent.Good work!
    Cheers!
    *maybe you can use different hardness of your pencils

    Peter: What do you mean by repeating the line? Hatching?
    Sublimus: Hey, thank you! Judging by your sketchbook, you're proceeding quite fast, don't you?

    Finally got around to doing an EOW. Hope you like it! Had to rush it because I began painting it just yesterday. Greeeeen!

    you've got a lot cool stuff going on here! my favourite has to be the jumping mouse - full of action! and i like your pencils - especially the "woah" one where you got more expessive with your strokes! but i'm not too fond of the eow's colour choices... they lack the subtelety of your other environments and speedpaints -i don't know the story but the green is really extrem!

    A Repin study I did yesterday and today. Lots of pencils lately, I'm drawing like a maniac, but hate to scan them. Soon, I promise.
